Will I be able to do physics at uni if I am doing BTEc Sport ? I am doing maths and physics but uni’s probably don’t want me to take BTEc Sport as my third subject?

Will I have to take another a level ? Thanks

most universities look for Maths and Physics. The third a level subject would normally not matter. The main issue would be is your btec a diploma which should class as an a level or a certificate which doesnt. You would be best checking this issue with the universities themselves to get a definitive answer.

You should be fine as you have Maths and Physics. Third subject shouldn't be too much of an issue. Here are some examples:

Kings College London - D with four modules at Distinction and two A-levels at grades AB, including grade A in both Mathematics and Physics - https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/undergra...ysics-bsc.aspx

Royal Holloway - Distinction plus A in A-level Maths and A in A-level Physics. Plus a Pass in the practical element of any Science A-levels taken. - https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk/cour...ysics-bsc.aspx

Sussex - Grades AB in A-levels and Distinction in BTEC Level 3 National Extended Certificate. You will need A-level in Mathematics (grade A). Physics is desirable, but we will consider applicants on a case-by-case basis. - http://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/underg...my/physics-bsc

Oxford - A*AA to include Mathematics and Physics. The A* must be in Mathematics, Physics or Further Mathematics. A D grade (distinction) in a BTEC National would be considered equivalent to an A at A-level, and a D* in a BTEC National would be considered equivalent to an A* at A-level - https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/unde...physics?wssl=1 / https://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/unde...rements?wssl=1

Bath - A*A in A level Mathematics and Physics plus grade D in the BTEC Subsidiary Diploma - http://www.bath.ac.uk/courses/underg...y-requirements
